    Sounds like you may be on to something. Trent's blog says Narron is saying it's either Livingston or Dumatrait.

    The reds brass has something against giving young guys a shot at the league.I mean Homer is as ready as hes ever going to be and sending EE down was a horrible mistake.Let your young players come up and play so they can work out their problems here.

    Could not disagree more on the topic of Homer. The guy still needs to work on his control, and his K numbers have dropped significantly. Why start his clock early when he obviously needs more time to develop?

    Can he be stopped?

    Dumatrait is pitching for the Bats right now, so that leaves Livingston and Homer.

    Its also Livingston's turn, so he will be on regular rest, anyone else would have required a pitcher on long or short rest

    I think this is a great call, keeps a lefthander in the rotation and a guy who has put up good numbers at AAA and looked good in spring training.

    33 Ks to 4 BB is pretty impressive

    I think it will be Salmon sent back down or Santos released. Narron will want to keep two lefties, so Coutlangus and Stanton arent going anywhere. Neither is Weathers, Saarloos or Burton. And he came out and publicly backed Coffey after he blew the game the other night, so I doubt hes going down.

    Personally between Santos and Salmon I hope we keep Salmon up here.

    I'm still completely boggled by people who are calling for Santos to be released. He's been are best out of the pen, sans Saarloos.

    And I'm perfectly alright with leaving Homer down for now, he needs to work a tad on his control, and figure out how to K guys again, I DEFINITELY didn't see that one coming.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    People can knock Homer Bailey's supposive lack of control and stikeouts but he's still been pretty unhitable 34.1 innings of work only 20 hits add his 15 walks you have a 1.02 whip. He also has a 3-1 record and a 1.83 era in 6 starts.

    Bobby Livingston is 0-3 with a 3.22 era. Yes he has fine control 33 strikeouts and 4 walks in 44.2 innings and 7 starts. But he has been very hitable in 44.2 innings he has allowed 51 basehits and dispite his fine control has a whip of 1.23 which is higher than Homer.

    Sorry Homer Bailey may not be striking out as many as we expected but he's still been very unhitable. Knock Homer if you want but seems to me the just turned 21 year old is not exactly struggling to retire AAA hitters.

    Update Phil Dumatrait moved to 5-1 with a 1.99 era with tonights 2-1 win Marcus McBeth got his second save with a perfect 9th recording a strikeout he has 1.50 era since joining the Bat 1 run in 6 innings.
